Monique Dupree at C2E2 2020

Today, I feature one of the last pictures I took before the pandemic hit and the world shut down. Coincidentally, it features Monique Dupree, one of the first celebs I met at a comic con.
Nicknamed "Tha True Original GATA, Dupree has had a long and varied career. One of 10 children, including brother actor Tony Todd, Dupree appeared in 1989's Lean On Me. Since then, she has had many acting roles, along with being a model, burlesque performer and more.
Along the way, she also got involved in wrestling. She filled a lot of roles for Tommy Dreamer's House of Hardcore and also spent time in Impact Wrestling.
I have met Dupree a few times over the many years, but I was still surprised when she recognized me at C2E2 2020. I was walking by her booth and she called me over to chat a bit. No, it wasn't just to get my cash for a photo, because she didn't even charge me for this pic. She was as sweet as could be.
Go to to learn more about all of her work. If you go to any comic con, keep an eye out for her, because she also likes to be in costume at or away from her booth.
C2E2 returns April 26-28. Go to for all the info. I hope to see you there.
